The original form of this therapy for horses stems from Bowen Therapy, which is a therapy based on the manual application of gentle non-invasive moves, which the Australian Tom Bowen developed at the end of the seventies for humans with physical medical conditions. The Australian Alison Goward adapted this therapy for horses and has been using it successfully since the 1990’s. She named it EMRT, which is short for: Equine muscle Release Therapy.
Horses are athletes and just like humans they suffer from strain and pressure, which can lead to problems and illnesses which can be expressed in physical, emotional or mental symptoms. EMRT helps to correct these and supports the body in finding ist own natural balance on all levels.
The technique consists of a succession of gentle, sensitive, manuel moves, which stimulate the fascia or connective tissues in specific key places within the horse body. The fascia returns back to its original supple condition and the natural function of muscles, circulation, nerves and organs is reestablished.
In order to achieve optimal results, a minimum of three treatments should be given. A treatment needs an average of an hour, depending on how the horse reacts and how many pauses are needed.
